Letters to My Son - August
Friday, August 15, 2014
I'm taking part in a blog circle with some other fabulous women, where each month I will include a letter to my boy along with a few pictures that capture the emotion and love I feel for him. I hope that you will enjoy this feature as much I have enjoyed the process, and will also take the leap to the next blog in the circle each month....
Dear sweet boy,
We are getting ready to embark on a new journey as you start preschool through the school district next week. With this transition you will be riding a school bus back to your daycare. We had preschool orientation this week at your new school, and I know the teachers will help you to grow and thrive. I know I've seen such growth from you over the past month.
You have transitioned to sleeping in your big boy bed full time. It was about a two week transition, and now you love climbing into your bed after our nightly story time. We met a major milestone with the little potty and you actually told us you wanted to go to the bathroom and then went - I hope this means we are on our way to saying goodbye to diapers. You got a haircut. You have started to really start speaking in full sentences with more and more words are becoming understandable and clear. You have started doing a much better job of using "your big boy ears" and listening to Mommy.
This month I wanted to share a few pictures that I didn't take, but were taken at school by your teachers. I hope that the friendships you are just starting to form, blossom over the next several months. You and little Cade have become fast buddies, playing ball together daily, and even sharing some bonding time over books.
My little wild child, I hope that you greet these opportunities with excitement and let the experiences make you stronger. It is such an exciting time to know you are becoming more independent each day, but I'm so thankful that you are so loving and caring. You are my precious boy, and my baby you will always be.
Please continue on with your circle and head over to read Chantell's letter to her sons.
